Hm, heat, but where? what is overheating? CPU temperature reaches max 79, maybe ram's temperature ? I have a cooler for the ram and I haven't use it yet. Chipset's radiator is not hot (i touch it with fingers).

I have succeeded to pass Linx without errors with the 8GB corsairs and CPU frequency 4000Mhz . I wonder what is the meaning of these options:

CPU Core1 GTL Ref voltage - [0.63*VTT] (i haven't change this)
CPU Core2 GTL Ref voltage - [0.67*VTT] (i haven't change this)
MCH GTL Ref voltage - Auto
CPU PLL Voltage - 1.5V

because i changed them to:

CPU Core1 GTL Ref voltage - [0.67*VTT]
CPU Core2 GTL Ref voltage - [0.69*VTT]
MCH GTL Ref voltage - [0.64*VTT]

You help me a lot and all my results are thanks to you smile.gif Thank you for the help !

If I change the air cooling with a water cooling I should be able to clock more, because of the lowering of the CPU temperatures, which will allow me to rize the CPU voltage and to make it stable at higher frequencies. But does it worth the money, spent for water cooling? Maybe it will if I can easily move the water cooling from this socket to the next one when i decide to upgrade the CPU, mobo and RAM. I have no experience in water cooling and this is the reason i haven't try it yet.

So going to jump into the overclocking world for the first time on this board. I bought this board 3 years ago and have been using it since as my daily use/gamer and it has been good to me. I tried doing an overclock with the built in automatic tool when I first got it but it ran too hot and would reboot at random so I reset it and left it alone for these years.

My current rig is in my profile but the basics are:
Biostar TP i45 revision 2.0
Intel Core Duo E8500 3.16 Wolfdale
Hyper Evo 212 Plus (idles @ 39 Celsius, max load 54 Celsius)
4x2Gb DDR2 G.Skill 'gaming' RAM @ 800, timings unknown (I think 5-5-5-5-15)
EVGA 9800GTX+ with mild OC from factory.
700watt power supply
Rose will Thor V2 case

I just got jthe CPU cooler and new case a little over a week ago and run a heat test through Prime95. My average idle is 39-40 Celsius (although mono readout and BIOS claim it is only idling between 25-28) and my max load under P95 was 54 for a split second, average is 52 celsius. I have an Ultra Kaze Scythe I will most likely slap on, not sure how much benefit I will get from it but if I could drop it under 50 under Prime 95 I'd be happy.

So I'd like to start with just a mild and stable overclock. I know I need to disable speed stepping in the BIOS (or can that be left on for energy savings at idle?) and that I should set the board to manual overclock. My first goal is to do a 3.6 overclock and from what I have read I shouldn't need to change any voltages, right? That is truly my biggest concern, messing with voltages as I don't want to fry anything. I'm reading a 400x9 is a safe bet, but can we set the multiplier to just 9 on this board? It looks like the stock is a 9.5 by everything....can it handle 400x9.5 stable without voltage changes?

Thanks for patience and help. I have read a lot of this thread and will continue to try and absorb it, but first time diving in and I'd like not to fry anything.

Hey guys, anybody know dimensions of MOSFET waterblock? Thanks
